    I bought a used reverb pedal on eBay. Cost me $5 for shipping, no problem. Said pedal has a defect that wasn't mentionned. LED light doesn't work.

    Seller refunded what I paid and ask me to send it back, but he want me to pay for shipping his way. I shouldn't have to pay for shipping, it's his problem, not mine. Am I being obtuse or is he ?

    All this is rhetorical, as he now tells me to foget about shipping and keep the pedal.

    How do you see it ?

    He needs to cover the return shipping if he didn’t describe the item accurately.

    Sounds like the sellers done messing with it.

    Looks like you got a pedal for $5 shipping. Replace the led.

    Ethically, I think there are 2 ways: Partially refund for defect and replace the led, or return the pedal and give your money back. Shipping shouldn't be your problem because of the inaccurate item describing.
